Windows Phone 7 ‘Tango’ and ‘Apollo’ updates to follow Mango

With Microsoft getting ever closer to releasing the first major update for Windows Phone 7 – Mango - it appears the software maker is already working on two follow-up updates – Tango and Apollo.

According to a DigiTimes report, sources at Taiwanese components maker Compal Communications, which makes devices for Nokia and Acer, has reportedly inked a deal with Microsoft to manufacture handsets running the upcoming Mango update of Windows Phone 7 as well as a hitherto unheard of ‘Tango’ refresh.

“Compal has signed with Microsoft for licensed use of the Mango platform and Tango, a platform to succeed Mango”, the sources noted.

This is then likely to be succeeded by another major update, ‘Apollo’, which we think is the codename for Windows Phone 8 and is probably not going to drop until next year at least.

We’re in the dark as to what Microsoft has planned for Tango, or even Apollo. But considering the size of Mango, which the Redmond giant claims will pack more than 500 features, we can expect something equally substantial.
